1968 Kandya Ltd formed a jointly owned company with D. Meredew Ltd. To be known as Kandya Meredew Ltd it was established to rationalise and increase both companies' exports. Kandya already exported 31 per cent of its furniture although Meredew had bigger resources. Kandya now used the large Meredew showroom in Ridgmount Place, which also housed the offices of the new company. Meredew's Planning Unit, also worked on export designs for the new company. As part of its concentration on exports, the new company specialised in furniture for hotels and oil companies.
